Taupo, Waikato

Hi, my name is Sharon and I have been a Home-based Educator for eight years. I am a Mum of three, Kate (11), Riley (9) and Liam (6). I have completed NZQA Level 4 Certificate in Early Childhood Education and also hold a First Aid Certificate which will always be up to date. I run a purpose built home-based kindy with plenty of resources, toys and play equipment. We have a large inside area, a large garden with a castle playground and a native bush area (great for bear hunts!). 

I enjoy looking after the older children from 2 1/2 to 5. My mum, 'Nanny' looks after the younger children. I offer Be School Ready programme which involves numbers and letters, spelling and writing. Making friends and social skills, structured and free play activities, physical/gross motor skills and other learning opportunities are also a large focus in this programme. 

I reguarly document your children's progress using both Storypark and journals with learning stories and artwork. 

I get together quite reguarly with Nanny Pauline, for the children to experience a larger group of children and learn social skills, though we still have the benefits of a smaller group with low adult to children ratios. I also attend weekly Kids at Home activities; gymnastics, playgroup and outings. I have a close relationship with the local school Wairakei Primary which most of the children move on to once they reach 5 or 6 years of age. 

I am located in rural farmland, just of Oruanui road, from SH1. This is 15 minutes from Wairakei and Kinloch.
